Summer Jewelry

Summer Jewelry

It’s almost summertime in the south! The summer heat has hit the coast, and it’s time to start preparing for days spent on the water and nights sitting out on the porch. No matter what activities you’re embarking on this summer, we hope you’re looking and feeling your best. To help give you an inspiration of how to accessorize these upcoming months, we’ve come up with some of our favorite summer pieces and looks below!

Nautical Jewelry

Do you love spending the summer days relaxing on the water? Us too! One of the best parts about summer is spending time at the beach, so it’s no surprise nautical jewelry is an essential accessory for the warm coastal weather! This includes pieces with waves, shells, anchors, fish, or any other features reminding you of the beach! Even when you're not enjoying the ocean breeze, wearing nautical jewelry will allow you to take a piece of the beach with you wherever you go.

Turquoise & Coral Jewelry

Summer fashion trends are all about wearing bright and lively colors and this includes your accessories as well. Although any vivid and energetic colored jewelry is great for summer wear, two styles really saying summer to us are turquoise and coral pieces. Both of these colors are fun and can work with lots of other shades and styles. Turquoise and coral are two beautiful hues that are reminiscent of the beach and capture the allure of the open water. We love these colors on earrings, necklaces, and bracelets!


Fringe Earrings

There’s no jewelry style more fun than fringe! Fringe earrings allow you to show off your playful side while still sporting a smart, chic look with your accessories. These trendy earrings come in a variety of colors and styles that will add an extra bit of flair to any outfit. If you’re looking to add more color to your jewelry collection, bright colored or multicolored fringe earrings are a great way to incorporate a vibrant pop of color into your style! Fringe earrings can be worn during your everyday routine or with your night out look, which makes them a great accessory for all your summer fun.



 

Layered Bracelets & Bangles

Having fun with your looks is a must for this summer! Stacking bracelets is a great way to create a brand new look from pieces you already own. Putting together a good looking stack of bracelets can give your look more texture and give it a more chic appearance. Layering bracelets allows you to mix and match different colors, shapes, and styles creating one cohesive look. Some of our favorite bracelet pairings are bangles and beads, dainty bracelets and cuffs, and different metals. No matter what you decide to layer, stacking bracelets is sure to bring new life into some of your favorite pieces!

Colored Cultured Pearls

Pearl jewelry is always in style! The glistening elegance pearl can add to an outfit is unbeatable. For summer, we suggest switching up your look and opting for colored pearls rather than traditional white or cream pearls. Cultured pearls such as Tahitian and South Sea cultured pearls have various different hues and overtones and make beautiful accessories. The broad palette of these pearls allows you to choose a color that’ll bring a gorgeous shimmer and unique look for all your summer styles!


Are you ready for beach days and summer vacays? At W. P. Shelton Jewelers, we’re here to help you get ready for all your summer fun! No matter if you choose to wear one of these styles or all five, we know you’ll look great this summer.

A Guide to Finding the Perfect Engagement Ring

A Guide to Finding the Perfect Engagement Ring

Some girls dream up a proposal when they are little. Thinking about the endless possibilities. Some girls have notebooks, binders or even slideshows of exactly what they want, and when and where they want it.

Others don’t think about it at all. They are ready for the surprise, being taken by the moment.

Discovering Your Jewelry Style

Discovering Your Jewelry Style

Discovering your true jewelry style does not have to be difficult. It is actually a lot of fun! Plus, you may have more than one style to your jewelry. Below we have four main categories most of us fall under. They range from one extreme to the other – the practical soccer mom, to the statement making glamour queen. Do you know which one, or ones you are? Let’s get started!

 

The Glamour Queen

She enjoys the social scene; it gives her a reason to wear those statement pieces. Large diamond hoop earrings, 2+ carat diamond rings, layered diamond bracelets, a simple – yet sparkling diamond necklace, etc. The list can go on for her. Diamonds really are her best friend. When shopping, the more jewelry grabs her attention, the more she needs it!

The Glamour Queen

 

The Casual Woman

With her collection, she has subtle and timeless pieces. She is not worried about making a statement, rather than making sure her jewelry gives the same laid-back vibe she lives by. Matching jewelry sets are her best friend, since they require little thought when pairing with her casual lifestyle. Pearls, soft colored gemstones and simple metal jewelry are what she is pulled towards when shopping.

The Casual Woman 

 

The Soccer Mom

Her daily jewelry routine is probably a lot like her make-up routine – quick, consistent and simple. She loves owning jewelry that can match with just about anything, because it is versatile. Her jewelry collection likely consists of diamond or pearl studs, her wedding bands and a pendant necklace. When she shops for new jewelry, she instantly thinks of all the many ways in which she will get her use out of it – she is practical!

The Soccer Mom 

 

The Trend Setter

From mixing and matching, to wearing the newest pieces we just received – this woman knows how to lead the trends. She is not afraid to wear something unique like art, nor is she afraid to pair different shades of stones. At times she wears large statement pieces, and other times she goes for a subtle yet unique shape. She is such the fashion setter; she can bring back outdated jewelry and make it chic again. No matter what, you can count on her to know and start the latest trends for jewelry.

The Trend Setter

 

Now that you know the four main jewelry categories, which one or ones do you fall under? Are you a Soccer Mom during the week, and a Trend Setter during the weekend? Or are you the Casual Woman who also loves being the Glamour Queen? It’s always fun to be a little of all, too! Don't be afraid to be yourself, that is what makes jewelry shopping and wearing fun!

The 6 Best Gifts for Any Mom

The 6 Best Gifts for Any Mom

Are you frantically running around, trying to think of the best gift idea for the special mom in your life? Are you losing sleep at night thinking what you bought is not as great as your amazing mother/spouse/partner/friend? Whether she is a perfectly practical mom, a super soccer mom or a glamour girl, we have many jewelry items that will surely put a memorable smile on her face. Wearable timeless keepsakes really are the perfect solution, as they can be passed down from one generation to the next.

Being a mom is an ever-growing job. With each passing milestone, moms earn badges right alongside their kids. She deserves a gift continually reminding her of how much she is loved, appreciated and all the joy she brings to this world.

Essentially, there are three categories of jewelry for moms:

  1. Sentimental
  2. Subtle jewelry
  3. Unique jewelry

To help you decide which to choose, think about what kind of jewelry she would appreciate the most. If you think she would wear and enjoy something emphasizing motherhood and family, a more sentimental piece would be best (i.e. birthstone bands). On the other hand, if her jewelry tends to be more on the subtle side, gift her favorite jewelry style (i.e. stud earrings). Then there is always jewelry which symbolizes her unique qualities(i.e. custom designed jewelry).

Below we have listed out six of the best gifts for ANY mom.

    • 1 - Lockets

      Lockets

      – These charms allow you to add pictures and/or engrave them to keep the ones she loves close to her heart. (Great for our mushy sentimental mommas!)



    • 2 - Bracelets

      Lockets

      – These are great for our multitasking mommas who wear many hats! With multiple sets, she can play it simple while out and about during the day, or dress it up for a fancy night out.



    • 3 - Family jewelry

      Lockets

      – Gift her with a birthstone representing each of her children/grandchildren, or even a baby’s footprint! No matter where she goes, or what she is doing, this sentimental mom will always have a reminder of all her family.



    • 4 - Stackable rings

      Lockets

      – Remind her of all the little and big ones who love her. Great for all ages. Plus, they can be worn to BBQ’s or to a night at the opera!



    • 5 - Stud earrings

      Lockets

      – Stud earrings, whether they are diamonds or pearls, are great for our practical moms. They are simple, yet always so elegant and beautiful. A great choice for moms on-the-go.



    • 6 - Custom designed jewelry

      Lockets

      – Just like your "one-of-a-kind” mom, create a piece as unique as her. She will appreciate the time and effort put into creating something as special as her love.


All of the ideas are timeless styles, perfect for passing down as heirlooms in your family.

While moms should be appreciated every day of the year, gifting jewelry is a great opportunity to show how grateful you are for everything she has done.

So, what are you waiting for? Come on by and see us, and we can help you pick out the perfect gift for your amazing momma!
